Shel Silverstein
“Listen to the mustn'ts, child. Listen to the don'ts. Listen to the shouldn'ts, the impossibles, the won'ts. Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me... Anything can happen, child. Anything can be.”
Shel Silverstein

William Shakespeare
“We know what we are, but not what we may be.”
William Shakespeare

Haruki Murakami
“Unfortunately, the clock is ticking, the hours are going by. The past increases, the future recedes. Possibilities decreasing, regrets mounting.”
Haruki Murakami, Dance Dance Dance

George Saunders
“Don't be afraid to be confused. Try to remain permanently confused. Anything is possible. Stay open, forever, so open it hurts, and then open up some more, until the day you die, world without end, amen.”
George Saunders, The Braindead Megaphone

Erin Morgenstern
“Someone needs to tell those tales. When the battles are fought and won and lost, when the pirates find their treasures and the dragons eat their foes for breakfast with a nice cup of Lapsang souchong, someone needs to tell their bits of overlapping narrative. There's magic in that. It's in the listener, and for each and every ear it will be different, and it will affect them in ways they can never predict. From the mundane to the profound. You may tell a tale that takes up residence in someone's soul, becomes their blood and self and purpose. That tale will move them and drive them and who knows what they might do because of it, because of your words. That is your role, your gift. Your sister may be able to see the future, but you yourself can shape it, boy. Do not forget that... there are many kinds of magic, after all.”
Erin Morgenstern, The Night Circus

Nicholas Sparks
“It is the possibility that keeps me going, and though you may call me a dreamer or a fool or any other thing, I believe that anything is possible.”
Nicholas Sparks

Søren Kierkegaard
“If I were to wish for anything, I should not wish for wealth and power, but for the passionate sense of the potential, for the eye which, ever young and ardent, sees the possible. Pleasure disappoints, possibility never. And what wine is so sparkling, what so fragrant, what so intoxicating, as possibility!”
Søren Kierkegaard, Either/Or: A Fragment of Life

Dean Koontz
“Even as a child, she had preferred night to day, had enjoyed sitting out in the yard after sunset, under the star-speckled sky listening to frogs and crickets. Darkness soothed. It softened the sharp edges of the world, toned down the too-harsh colors. With the coming of twilight, the sky seemed to recede; the universe expanded. The night was bigger than the day, and in its realm, life seemed to have more possibilities.”
Dean Koontz, Midnight

You can't take the sky from me.
“You can't take the sky from me.”
Joss Whedon

Ralph Waldo Emerson
“What is a weed? A plant whose virtues have not yet been discovered.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson

D.T. Suzuki
“Emptiness which is conceptually liable to be mistaken for sheer nothingness is in fact the reservoir of infinite possibilities.”
D.T. Suzuki

Steve Maraboli
“This new day has greeted us with no rules; unconditional opportunity. Do not dilute the power of this new day with the hardship of yesterday. Greet this day the way it has greeted you; with open arms and endless possibility.”
Steve Maraboli, Life, the Truth, and Being Free

Shannon L. Alder
“When you see people only as personalities, rather than souls with life missions to fulfill, you forever limit the growth and possibilities of what God has in store for another person.”
Shannon L. Alder

Umberto Eco
“Show not what has been done, but what can be. How beautiful the world would be if there were a procedure for moving through labyrinths.”
Umberto Eco, The Name of the Rose

Rebecca Solnit
“How can I tell a story we already know too well? Her name was Africa. His was France. He colonized her, exploited her, silenced her, and even decades after it was supposed to have ended, still acted with a high hand in resolving her affairs in places like Côte d'Ivoire, a name she had been given because of her export products, not her own identity.
Her name was Asia. His was Europe. Her name was silence. His was power. Her name was poverty. His was wealth. Her name was Her, but what was hers? His name was His, and he presumed everything was his, including her, and he thought be could take her without asking and without consequences. It was a very old story, though its outcome had been changing a little in recent decades. And this time around the consequences are shaking a lot of foundations, all of which clearly needed shaking.
Who would ever write a fable as obvious, as heavy-handed as the story we've been given?
His name was privilege, but hers was possibility. His was the same old story, but hers was a new one about the possibility of changing a story that remains unfinished, that includes all of us, that matters so much, that we will watch but also make and tell in the weeks, months, years, decades to come.”
Rebecca Solnit, Men Explain Things to Me

“Write this down: My life is full of unlimited possibilities.”

Mira Grant
“Nothing is impossible to kill. It's just that sometimes after you kill something you have to keep shooting it until it stops moving”
Mira Grant, Feed

Amit Ray
“Give time, give space to sprout your potential. Awaken the beauty of your heart – the beauty of your spirit. There are infinite possibilities.”
Amit Ray, Nonviolence: The Transforming Power

“With respect to the requirement of art, the probable impossible is always preferable to the improbable possible.”
Aristotle, Poetics

James E. Faust
“It is a denial of the divinity within us to doubt our potential and our possibilities.”
James E. Faust

William James
“We forget that every good that is worth possessing must be paid for in strokes of daily effort. We postpone and postpone until those smiling possibilities are dead... By neglecting the necessary concrete labor, by sparing ourselves the little daily tax, we are positively digging the graves of our higher possibilities.”
William James

China Miéville
“Any moment called now is always full of possibles.”
China Miéville, Kraken

Melissa Landers
“She had no idea what the future would hold for any of them, beyond possibilities as infinite as the stars.

And really, that was enough.”
Melissa Landers, Starflight

“There is far more spiritual potential within than most people realize. The potential is so great that to define it in words would be impossible.”
Belsebuub, Gazing into the Eternal: Reflections upon a Deeper Purpose to Living

E.A. Bucchianeri
“Ah, the magic of music, with it, all things are possible.”
E.A. Bucchianeri, Brushstrokes of a Gadfly

Jodi Meadows
“Before I had a chance to feel too sorry for myself, I turned toward the front of the cabin and found the bookcases carved right into the wall. Hundreds of leather-bound volumes rested in dim alcoves. I had no idea what stories or information they held. It didn’t matter. I wanted to absorb anything they had to say.”
Jodi Meadows, Incarnate

Kiera Cass
“I will never forget your fire. I can't wait to see what you do.”
Kiera Cass, Happily Ever After

Michael Faudet
“I suddenly realized it’s no coincidence the two middle letters of life are if. For every action we make, there is a reaction. The outcome often beyond our control, fragile and fraught with ruinous consequences. Like a soap bubble made real by a gentle breath only to be taken by it.”
Michael Faudet, Dirty Pretty Things
